12 oz can...best before dating of 4-29-19 stamped on the bottom

Pours dark and stout like, moderate cap leaves ample strands of fine lacing left on the glass

Rich milk chocolate note on the nose

Smooth and easy drinking brew, with more and more chocolate notes....another quality brew from the good folks at JDubs

Black in color with minimal light penetration. There's a fingernail of brown around half of the rim. The aroma is of Hershey's cocoa powder and lactose. It definitely tastes exactly like milk chocolate cocoa powder and lactose and is extremely sweet. The mouth is dry and a touch watery, which seems to suit what is going on here.

12 oz can from Florida.
Very fizzy tan head over an opaque body.
Mild but pleasant aroma with chocolate, roasted nuts and brown bread notes.
Moderatrly strong and lightly sweet flavor.
Near creamy smooth body with medium - light carbonation

12oz can. The aroma is sweet and chocolatey, more like a dessert than a beer. The taste like the aroma has a lingering sweetness with some roasted malts in the background and a smooth chocolatey finish.

Had this as a 4-oz pour as part of a sampler at Whole Foods in Destin, Florida.

Great look, nice coffee aroma, great mouth-feel and flavor. I liked it a little more than the Abita Bourbon Street Imperial Stout I was also sampling, which says something considering the Abita imperial stout is 10%, and this milk stout is only 5.6%. Also, I liked it much more than the Cigar City Cubano-style Espresso Brown I had days before.
